    PVC valve is positive crankcase ventilation,ive never heard of a primary compression valve....either way you can buy them at either real steel or roadcraft

    I dont run a pcv as with the edelbrock heads you can get oil drawn in to the manifold causing smoke. If your engine appears to be breathing? its not always due to ring blow by,it can be the oil temperature in the sump being too hot causing evaporation and the action of the pistons make the breathers smoke!

    [QUOTE=scooder;586357]Why do Edelbrock heads make a differance? the oil drain back passage ways are too small and allow oil to pool in the lower corners of the heads and combined with the cheap baffle design of the edelbrock valve covers encourage oil to be drawn through the pcv valve...

    Sortable though surely, I know on they small Ford eights the oil drain holes are too small even with stock heads. May be cut the oil delivery to the rocker gear down a bit (you dont need or want lots of oil up there, some is good lots is not) enlarge the drain holes to the max. And fit a proper oil baffle/seperator for the pcv. I think that a pcv is a real good idea when properly sorted, it gets rid of lots of nasty ness in the engine and redcues sludge build up. And its this build up that will slowly close off the oil drain back holes and lead to lots of oil in the heads. All that oil in the heads will find its way down the vavle stems and into the combustion chamber resulting in the buggering up of the octane rating of the fuel, so pinking and knocking, hammering the ring lands to bits, and giving the crank bearings a real hard time. Let alone the build up of cack on the back of the valve heads ruining all you hard payed for performance.
